Hi, I'm Parker 👋

First make your sriracha sauce and set aside.
Next shred your crab or imitation crab to make the base of your salad.
Top with your spicy "dressing" and chopped green onions.
Then it's time for the scallops! <3 They'll cook FAST, making this a quick and easy appetizer, lunch, dinner or side dish!
Pat scallops dry, season with a little salt and pepper and set aside.
Heat a stainless steel pan/skillet with a few tablespoons of oil and wait for it to get hot before adding your scallops.
If you're cooking more than just a few at a time, grab a larger pan and more oil, so you can space them out and give them room to sizzle!
Once your pan is ready, add the scallops and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden and opaque in the middle. Overcooking will be your worst enemy here so keep an eye on them -- the second side will most likely cook a teeny bit faster than the first so check it after a minute or so.
If you want to simply cook plain scallops with a buttery wine sauce then check out this recipe. Paul likes it that way but I don't (the butter sauce is too rich for me) -- I prefer them with sriracha sauce!
Top your crab salad with the freshly seared scallops, sprinkle with some panko breadcrumbs [I love the crunch they give to the dish!] and dig in!
